    Summary

    Home. That word, for the longest time, was foreign to Michael. He was living on this pile of rock people called Earth, looking to the stars, waiting for his family to come around and pick him up. And then, once they would come, he would be home.

    (Written for day 3 of Malex Week 21: "Seventeen again", with inspiration from day 2, "home")

    Summary

    In hindsight, Alex thinks he should have seen it coming. Ever since the drive-in, when Michael first told him about his father, he should have seen the inevitable coming. Because even if there aren’t a special set of rules that apply just to Michael, his situation is peculiar, to say the least.

    He could hear Michael’s voice in his head, telling him to stop blaming himself, but it only made it worse. That he could still hear his voice. When there was a possibility he would never see those lips move again.

    Summary

    Walt looked out at the length of the yard- the junk in piles, the cars, the vast empty space where their space extends past the garage. Michael ran through the space, Sharkey held above his head, as if he was swimming. He thought about Ms. Nora and her sunflowers.

    Michael and Walt (and Sharkey) grow some sunflowers.

    Summary

    When Michael had fallen to the ground seeing the flames, Sanders had kept standing, head high. But deep down, he was in a similar state to Michael - teary eye(s) and wet cheek(s), calculating the loss of money, the loss of small sentimental value. Because even if there wasn’t much in the airstream, it was all Michael’s, and Sanders had grown used to it being there, was even attached to the poor thing.

    Summary

    The sun is just beginning to set below the horizon when Michael hears a car pull into Sanders’ lot. He’s not expecting another customer this late in the day, so he edges himself out from under the sedan he’s working on to see who it is. 

    A smile tugs at his lips the moment he recognizes the SUV parked a few yards away. He reaches for the rag hanging out of his pocket to wipe the grease from his fingers as Alex exits the car and starts making his way over to him. There’s something dangling from his hand, but Michael is too distracted by the way Alex’s sweater is clinging to his chest beneath his open leather jacket to clock what it is just yet.

    Summary

    Michael came home from school on Friday sniffling and coughing, but very excited. Michael always hopped off the bus excited as hell from whatever he had learned in his 4th grade class, but the coughing and sniffling was new.

    The kid didn’t seem bothered by it, but in the two or so years since Michael had come to live with Sanders, he had never gotten sick, so it worried Walt.

    Summary

    “Do you remember what I said to you, the last time I was here?” Walt asked, quietly to Michael only. The other adults at the table were busy going through the papers, initialing on lines. Michael finally lifted his head to look at him properly. He nodded. “You’re going to come with me, to live with me, from now on. Is that ok with you?” Michael frowned and Walt tightened his grip on the stuffed shark still in his hand. Michael looked at his face. Walt tried to be as open as he could, tried to be the kind of person Michael needed in his life, the kind of person Ms. Nora thought he could be.

    Michael nodded.

    “I- I brought something for you,” Walt said, tripping over his words in worry. Michael may have agreed to come, but Walt was still uncertain. “I know you like space, but um, I thought maybe you would like something a little different.” He took the plush shark from under the table and placed it next to Michael’s drawing. “For you.”

    Summary

    Sanders had given him a job, a safe place to sleep when he needed it, even the truck that had been his home and lifeline for so long.  And now, he's given Michael the autoshop.  Granted, it was an upon-Sanders'-death-or-retirement kind of thing, and Michael's pretty sure Sanders is too damn stubborn to do either of those things, but still.  Sanders Auto, the one physical place in Roswell he could ever even consider something like home, was going to be his one day.

     

    He opens to a fresh page, smooths it out, and starts sketching, scribbling notes in the margin as the thoughts occur to him.  He's got $3472 to give the old auto shop a new life.

    Summary

    Something broke in this town, once.

    Michael Ortecho has his life pretty put together. Starting high school is tough, sure, and dealing with teenage hormones and high school drama is never fun, but he’s the happiest he’s ever been, with more family and friends than he feels he deserves. He's working hard and studying harder to repay all his debts—to make the most of his new life.

    Elsewhere in Roswell, though, the cracks begin to show.
